Idris Elba’s hopes of being the first black James Bond have been raised after the producer of the film franchise said “it is time” for a non-white hero.
The forthcoming Bond 25 film, directed by Danny Boyle, is likely to be Daniel Craig's last, after the actor said he wanted to “go out on a high note.”
Barbara Broccoli, the producer behind the films, told her friend director Antoine Fuqua she felt that a black actor in the famous role “will happen eventually”.
He said the two then discussed who was in the running.
Fuqua told The Daily Star: “Idris could do it if he was really tight and in shape. He doesn't look 45. No one would even know. "When Sean Connery stepped into the scene he was a rough old dude.”
While many have pointed out that Elba will be nearing his 50s as the casting takes place, fans of the actor have said age is just a number, and that he is in great shape.
